    Hi,
    I just come back from a five days mission in the same area where I went with a friend.
    Plenty of skinny deer about. I shot a young hind and got 3kg of meat all up (2 backsteaks and all the meat of the rear legs).
    Her stomach was full but the ground is literally cleaned up and they don't have that much good nutrient to eat.
    We stayed two nights at the same bivy on the saddle before moving on. We need more of those bivys around to get people going into the remote areas and shoot those deer.

    Wonder if it has been due to a pretty bad drought and no hunting over Covid lockdown?.

    The understory is literally eaten bare around there erniec. I doubt if adequate rainfall could do much for the forest when any new growth likely gets browsed just as soon as it pops up. I'm not surprised about the skinny deer. It's also a longer walk than most hunters are up for, unless flying in. Go for a backsteaks mission and shoot more deer fellas!

    Yup, thats about the size of it @joelhenton. Bugger all seedling recruitment in anything remotely palatable compounded with a naturally cunning and cautious species of deer in an area that gets relatively little pressure....perfect situation for making small skinny deer
